Plot

“Strange Victory” is about racial bias in post World War II America. Folowing “Native Land” in Leo Hurwitz’ filmography, it uses some of the same techniques: dramatized scenes interspersed with scenes of compilation news reel footage, and scenes of evocative imagery. An epilogue about the civil rights movement, added in 1964 makes the arc of the film more complete
